COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter is smooth, chocolaty & sessionable. Medium bitterness, mild hop flavor & layers of malt make it easy to rock the block to the "dark side."

Nice to see more porters springing up in Texas and a bonus when they’re this good. Nice balance of bitter and sweet chocolate over coffee and caramel.

Poured a dark brown color, almost black with aromas of earth, roast, chocolate, light caramel, and some malt. flavors followed suit, smooth on the palate, and enjoyable. Not over the top with chocolate or roast, spot on overall.

dtadrunk (1) - - JUL 3, 2014 does not count
Reminds me of a mix between Left Hand’s Milk Stout and Southern Star’s Buried Hatchet. A smooth complex mix of sweet chocolate and malt flavors. Feels a little heavy but light on the alcohol.

SPDickerman (986) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and hints of roast. Taste is chocolaty, roasty hints, and a touch of pine. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Four Corners Block Party finishes with a supple sweetness.

Steverus0 (193) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Roasted malt nose with the black porter and light, diminishing head are pretty standard here. A robust and effervescent mouthfeel leaves this brew pleasant and sessionable. Hop bitterness meets sweet roasted malts in the back of the palate. Not as clean as some of those with a good use of those clean but light crystal malts, but a good brew nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
